Chaos Project 3 by Dani DaOrtiz(VIP)

Chapter 3: Be Visual

Dani DaOrtiz shares with you a powerhouse multiphase routine that combines the mystery card plot with card at number and an impossible thought of card revelation. This trick is peak Dani. The Chaos Project is a one-year course in which you learn to harness the powers of chaos in your card magic to make the impossible a part of your everyday effects. Now set up in easy-to-follow chapters of The What, The How, and The Way, learning the magic of Dani DaOrtiz is even easier than ever before.

The What
The magician gives an audience member a treasure, a playing card that is sight unseen and held between their outstretched hands. Another spectator takes a packet of cards out of the deck randomly. A third magician deals through the remainder of the packet, shuffles the packet any way they want, and then places the top and bottom cards on the table. The person with the packet looks at a random card in the middle of their packet and remembers the suit. They then hand off a random number of cards to another spectator, and they remember the total number of cards given to them. The originally selected cards on the table are randomly returned to the deck, and the deck is shuffled. One of the spectators names a random number between one and fifty-two, and then the magic can begin. The cards are randomly cut, and then the number named by the spectator is dealt off the top of the deck. The card at the number is revealed, and it is discovered to be one of the selections originally taken from the deck. The deck is shuffled again, and when the deck is spread, the selection that was just found is now found face-up next to the card discovered at the number. These selections are placed on the top and bottom of the treasure card, trapped in the spectator’s hands. The thought of suit and thought of number from earlier are revealed, and the card they make is discovered to be the treasure card.

The How
Right off the top of the lesson, Dani immediately explains how the featured effect works. The Treasure is an unbelievable routine that combines a tremendous amount of information into multiple completely impossible revelations. Multiple cards are thought of, created, and remembered. The deck is shuffled. Impossibly all is revealed in three punchy moments of impossibility. Using the combination of a very simple stack and some bold moves, you too, will be able to perform this devastating effect.

The Why
While the effect in this lesson is very cerebral, the lesson is all about making your card magic more visual. When magicians think of the word visual, they often think of the eye-popping brain candy of the latest cutting-edge gimmicks. This lesson is about how to convey visual messages and fill your table, and performance area, with big feelings and memories. These are the secrets of how Dani DaOrtiz is how to fill the largest stages in magic with nothing more than a deck of cards and a pair of hands.

The Chaos Project is a year-long course in learning some of the devious methods and principles that make the magic of Dani DaOrtiz so deceptive. This second lesson is a deep dive into how making your effects visually larger can produce memories of truly impossible effects in the minds of your spectators. Welcome back to the chaos with Dani DaOrtiz in Chapter 3 of The Chaos Project.

Veering From Royal Road by Andrew Frost(VIP)

Andrew Frost - Veering from the Royal Road | Paradize Magic

p>When looking at a number of the effects from the Royal Road to Card Magic, I found their construction and handling to feel very dated. I have taken my three favourite effects from the book and reinvented them to make them more direct. using modern sleights and construction ideas.


Contained within the project are detailed explanations of my take on the following effects and sleights.

A Card and A Number - An ACAAN style effect in which the spectators card ends up at a thought of number that additionally allows you to divine the number that they thought of. In this I teach a more chaotic variation of the Miller Table Cut/Control.

Now You See It - A trick in which the magician attempts to guess the spectators card with a shocking transformation of a card under the spectators hand.

Designed for Laughter - The magician reads the poker face of a spectator whist trying to divine a card which has been shuffled into the deck (by the participant). You are not only able to divine the card in a magical fashion but have an undetectable kicker ending.

Reviews of Veering From the Royal Road

“A first class debut. A thoroughly enjoyable project. Great work” - Ollie Mealing @olliemealing

“It’s great to have someone this talented bring a fresh perspective and thoughtfulness to the classics. I’d definitely veer from the Royal Road any time!” - Ricky Smith @diagonalpalmshift

“‘The Royal Road To Card Magic’ is great an’ all, but who the hell uses the glide anymore? It’s such a treat to see smart, modernised handlings for great - yet overlooked - routines. Highly recommended.” - Stephen Long @hectorchadwick

Christian Grace – Miracle One

For decades, we’ve all obsessed over the idea of having a chosen card appear at a freely-selected number in a deck of cards. We consider it the holy grail of magic, one of the most fooling and intriguing card tricks you can do. Christian Grace is delighted to offer his unbelievably fair and fooling solution: “Miracle One”.

The journey of “Miracle One” started when Christian Grace (Creator of “Level One” and “Inevitable Choice”) posted a video of his take on the Any Card at Any Number (ACAAN) plot online. Forums lit up with people suggesting that he must have used some sneaky editing or a stooge. Magicians begged him to release his handling, and now he finally is.

You can see a full performance in the trailer above. “Miracle One”. This is a truly fooling and powerful effect that you’ll love performing for everyone you meet.

Here is a quick summary of exactly how “Miracle One” looks to your audience:

Two decks of cards are in full view from the start. Your spectator shuffles one of these decks before selecting a card and placing it off to the side as a prediction. This selection process happens entirely in their hands and you never touch (or switch) the card they choose.

They then freely name a number and deal to it in the other deck of cards. The card they land on is turned over to show it perfectly matches the original card they chose themselves in the beginning.

Their card. Their number. A truly impossible moment.

“Miracle One” is a super clean and fair ACAAN-style effect that works everytime, with no difficult sleight of hand. It’s a true miracle that any magician can do.

Key Points

  • Their chosen card is always at their chosen number, every time
  • There is no difficult sleight of hand required
  • Multi-layered methods make this one of the most deceptive versions of the plot ever released

“Miracle One” comes with everything you need to get started. This includes two decks of cards. The blue deck is gaffed and the red deck is a normal deck of cards with a few extra cards that you save as replacements. The comprehensive video instructions walk you through every possible scenario, so you can start performing “Miracle One” with confidence right away.

If you have any questions, you can learn more about “Miracle One” with this helpful FAQ.

Wild Cards By Faustino Palmero

Stand Up Monte by Garrett Thomas

A fabulous strolling trick that requires no table and packs a lot of magic and fun into a really great routine. Highly Recommended!!!!

A Wonderful Marriage of Wild Card & Three-Card Monte

It starts out easy enough…the magician displays a single 4 of Spades and plays a game of “one-card monte” with the spectator.

Just to make things a little tougher, another card, the Queen of Hearts, is added which acts as the money card.

After a few rounds, another 4 of Spades is added in and now the fun really begins.

No matter how hard they try, the spectator just can’t follow the Queen!

For the eye-popping climax, all of the cards are shown to have changed into the Queen of Hearts!
